The Multicultural Council of Wagga invited children of all different backgrounds to enjoy creative workshops of art and music over the past few days.
Community Development Officer for the multicultural council in Wagga, Thom Paton, said the sessions aimed to help the children explore their individual talents.
“It focuses on young people be able to develop ways of positive self-expression through different artistic outlets,” he said.
The workshops ran on Tuesday and Wednesday as part of a summer series of music and art in Wagga’s multicultural scene, in conjunction with an organisation in the state’s capital.
“A Sydney-based media and arts organisation, ‘Heaps Decent’, have been facilitating the sessions here, and we’ve been working collaboratively with them for nearly a decade now,” he said.
So far, Mr Paton said great music and art had been produced by the children.
“We’ve just had four girls record a traditional Yazidi song that they’re actually going to use at a cultural event coming up for them which is great,” he said.
